The Cornwall Downtown Business Improvement Association (DBIA) is thrilled to announce the installation of a stunning new illuminated ‘Love Downtown Cornwall’ sign at 101 Pitt Street, proudly displayed on the south facing facade of Tilly’s building.

This eye-catching addition marks a significant milestone in the phased Downtown lighting project, designed to enhance the aesthetic appeal of Downtown Cornwall and attract visitors both locally and from afar.

The ‘Love Downtown Cornwall’ sign is more than just a visual delight; it is a symbol of the community’s vibrant spirit and a beacon for tourism. Its prominent placement on the Tilly’s building was made possible through the collaborative efforts of owner Debbie Burns, property manager Nehmat Ghai, and NS Property Management. This project has been made possible through the generous support of RTO9, whose tourism grant funding has been instrumental in bringing this vision to life.

The DBIA extends its heartfelt gratitude to Eastern Sign Service for their exceptional craftsmanship and seamless installation of the sign. Their dedication and expertise have helped us create a landmark that will undoubtedly become a favourite spot for photo opportunities and social media sharing, further promoting Cornwall as a must-visit destination.

We also acknowledge the strong support of The City of Cornwall, whose collaboration has been crucial in facilitating this project. Together, the DBIA and City of Cornwall are committed to revitalizing the Downtown area, making it a welcoming and attractive place for residents and visitors alike.

“The installation of the ‘Love Downtown Cornwall’ sign is a vibrant addition to our community, embodying the pride and enthusiasm we have for our Downtown,” said Martha Woods, Interim Chair of the DBIA. “This project is a testament to the power of collaboration and the positive impact that comes from working together towards a common goal.”

The unveiling ceremony for the new sign will be held on Thursday, June 27 at 11:30 am, with local dignitaries, business owners, and community members in attendance. Everyone is welcome to join in celebrating this exciting moment.
